Fourier Transform Infra-red Spectrometer
Very often we are required to identify different types of materials on an artifact before we proceed with treatments. Making use of the distinctive peaks from the IR spectrum of any substance, we would be able to classify the material as well as understand its behavior and characteristic. Through making reference to our data library on materials, we can easily match an unknown material with the known reference. Fourier transform (named after the mathematician Fourier) is a complex mathematical operation that requires a high speed computer to operate, which will offer the advantages of high sensitivity, resolution and speed of data acquisition when used together in infra-red spectroscopy.
